Pak24tv has been a force in Pakistani media since its launch in 2000. The station began as a newscast. Its current brand is a result of a rebranding initiative after the 9/11 attacks. Pak24 used the tagline ‘Pukaar Ke Ahl-e-lah’ for nearly seven years. With its upcoming website, the brand will take on a new and exciting life. Don’t like it?

Why Pakistan needs an India-like website: The horrific bombing of a crowded Pakistani market is a reminder of the huge gaps that exist in Pakistan’s media. Internet penetration remains low and so does the use of computers. Facebook and Twitter have taken the country by storm. However, the vast majority of the population still doesn’t use social media, because of outdated technology and low internet penetration. Many others are just simply not educated enough.
